    I am new here. It was suggested I move this from the arthritis forum to this one. Any help would be appreciated.

    66 yr old mother is looking for a car after her old Chrysler LeBaron finally gave out. She wants 2 door, prefer about 2006 model year. Kicker is the gear shift. She cannot use the gear shift with the button you push in on the side with your thumb. She can use a button on the top of the gear shift. Also needs top notch power steering.

    Do you know of ANY such automobiles? She is renting a Maxima right now which she said works fine with the gear shift but is 4 door.

    Thanks for any insight!

    My 81 year old Mom drives a PT Cruiser and loves it. Besides, she looks so cute in it! Don't know about the button as I've only driven it a few times, sorry!

    You might want to go to a few sites like Mazda (I drive a Protege and love it!) for descriptions of the interiors. It should show you the shift thing. One on the column might be better for her.
